Gleco Plating IncLeaders in electroplated finishes

Metal Plating and Finishing Services

Gleco Plating has been providing comprehensive metal plating and finishing services for over 30 years. Our extensive capabilities allow us to serve a wide range of customers including the sheet metal, telecommunications, automotive, electronics, and aerospace industries. We use both rack and barrel plating to ensure our customers get top quality plating at the most economical prices.

We offer a variety of plating options based on our customers’ needs which include, but are not limited to: zinc plating, anodizing, passivation on stainless steel, electroless nickel plating, and chemfilm. We can plate aluminum, stainless steel, brass, copper, and steel. For maximum corrosion protection we offer clear, yellow, and black trivalent chromate zinc plating. Plating thicknesses can range from .020 to 2 mils, and part sizes can be up to 2.5’ x 5’ x 9’, and weigh up to 2,000 lbs.

We have excellent pre-plate treatment equipment to ensure a high-quality finish. Our full service lab with on-site technician is trained in ASTM and Mil-Spec standards. Our x-ray fluorescence, magnetic induction thickness, hull-cell analysis capabilities, salt spray, and atomic absorption testing ability ensure the quality that our customers have come to expect. Both of our facilities are RoHS compliant and are ISO 9001:2008 certified

We have a very quick turnaround time of 2-3 days, and rush delivery is available when needed. Our high standards for production quality and customer service have helped us to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations for over 30 years.
